Why you gotta give me such a sourpuss?

OK, I admit my timing on this sucks, but I just can't recommend enough the IFC comedy series The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman. Why does my timing suck? Because the season finale just happened this past Friday night... but don't let that stop you! IFC is rebroadcasting the entire series starting this Sunday, October 1st (11PM EST) and you don't want to miss it.

Comedian Laura Kightlinger (writer/producer guest on Will & Grace, Lucky Louie) created the series and stars as Jackie Woodman, a sarcastic and witty flailing screenwriter trying to make it in Hollywood without kissing (or killing) an ass. The humor is offbeat, to say the least, and had my wife and I spitting our drinks on many occasion (I'm still convulsing over the peyote-induced desert scene.)

The opening to the show is by far my favorite of all time, and mostly in part to Moris Tepper's wonderfully disjointed theme song "Sourpuss."
